July 4, 2017   Ali   Fantastic Beasts 2 Comments Off on ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel Rounds Out Cast, Major Plot Details Revealed

Fantastic Beasts sequel has started filming and information on the new cast and some plot points have been released … thanks to the Hollywood Reporter for this information!

The as-yet-untitled follow-up has started shooting in the U.K., with Jude Law among the new additions to the wizarding world.

Principal photography has now started on the as-yet-untitled sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first Harry Potter spinoff that grossed some $814 million for Warner Bros. last year.

And alongside the chief returnees of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, a host of additions have been made to the expanding wizarding world.

As previously announced, Jude Law has joined the cast as a young Albus Dumbledore, alongside Ezra Miller as Credence, Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, glimpsed in a moving photo as a woman from Newt’s past in the first, and Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander, Newt’s brother, a war hero and Auror.

Other names appearing include Claudia Kim (The Dark Tower, Avengers: Age of Ultron), a young woman introduced as an attraction at a wizarding circus, William Nadylam as a wizard named Yusuf Kama, Ingvar Sigurdsson as a bounty hunter, Olafur Darri Olafsson as Skender, who runs the circus, and Kevin Guthrie as Abernathy, the boss of the Magical Congress of the USA.

The screenplay — again written by J.K. Rowling after her debut in the first film — opens in 1927, a few months after Scamander helped to unveil and capture the infamous Grindelwald. However, the dark wizard was true to his word and escaped, gathering more followers to his cause. This time, it’s down to his former friend Albus Dumbledore to stop him, but with the help of former student Scamander.

The second in the five-part Fantastic Beasts series, being directed again by David Yates, is set to move the magic from New York to London and Paris, with some “surprising nods” to the Harry Potter films.

David Heyman, Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram are producing the film, with Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serving as executive producers. The creative teams are led by Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot, three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig, three-time BAFTA Award-winning editor Mark Day, four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Tim Burke, and Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Christian Manz.

The film is being shot at Warner Bros.’ Studios Leavesden in the U.K., home of all the Harry Potter films so far, and is slated for release on Nov. 16, 2018.

May 25, 2017   Ali   Early Man Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne’s ‘Early Man’ to Be Released by Lionsgate in North America

Early Man has been acquired by Lionsgate and Variety has all the details.

Lionsgate has acquired U.S. rights to Aardman Studios’ upcoming prehistoric comedy adventure “Early Man,” starring Eddie Redmayne.

Directed by Nick Park from a script by Mark Burton and John O’Farrell, the stop-motion movie is co-financed by the U.K.’s Aardman and France’s Studiocanal. It’s a re-team of the companies following 2015’s “Shaun the Sheep.” Lionsgate also handled the domestic distribution for “Shaun the Sheep.”

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer made the announcement during Thursday’s earnings call with Wall Street analysts. “Early Man” opens in the U.K. on Jan. 26 and in the U.S. on Feb. 16.

The film will be released by the Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label. Lionsgate will also represent licensing and merchandising for the film in the U.S.

Redmayne was the first cast member who boarded the toon, set at the dawn of time when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth. Tom Hiddleston is playing his adversary, Lord Nooth. Maisie Williams and Timothy Spall round out the cast.

The movie marks Park’s first feature film since 2005’s “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit,” which won the Academy Award for best animated film. Park also won three Oscars for his animated shorts “Creature Comforts,” “The Wrong Trousers,” and “A Close Shave.”

Studiocanal will distribute “Early Man” in the U.K., France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.

Lionsgate reported earnings on Thursday for its fourth quarter, which ended on March 31, that were above Wall Street expectations. Movie operations have been buoyed by its musical comedy-drama “La La Land,” which won six Academy Awards and grossed $443 million at the worldwide box office on a $30 million budget.

Motion picture segment revenues increased 7.3% to $654 million, driven by “La La Land,” “John Wick: Chapter 2,” and “The Shack.” Segment profit jumped to $52 million from $2.5 million as higher revenue more than offset operating expenses and marketing costs.

April 17, 2017   Ali   Video Comments Off on WATCH: Eddie Redmayne and Others Audition to Be Stephen Hawking’s New Voice for Comic Relief

Celebrated scientist Stephen Hawking is in the market for a new “voice,” and, as luck would have it, there are plenty of stars desperate to get the fruits of their vocal chords associated with one of the greatest minds in modern physics.

Or so a new video would have us believe. It was released Friday (March 24) to coincide with the airing of Red Nose Day in the U.K., an all-night televised charity drive to raise money for Comic Relief.

A host of A-listers auditioned for the role, ranging from Liam Neeson, Simon Cowell, and Stephen Fry to Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, while Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell, Gordon Ramsay, and even Miss Piggy gave it their best shot.

John Boyega gave it a go, pointing out his recent space experience would put him in a good position for knowing about black holes, but it was his fellow Star Wars actor Felicity Jones who arguably had a bigger claim to the role: she played Stephen’s wife in The Theory of Everything, after all.

Finally though came the most obvious choice: Eddie Redmayne. He of course not only played a young Hawking alongside Felicity, but also won the Oscar for Best Actor for his efforts.

Hawking, however, was unimpressed. Watch to see what happens (and which British icon eventually gets the job).

It’s not the first time Hawking has shown his funny side. Just last year he went head-to-head with Paul Rudd, while in 2015 he starred in a sketch with Little Britain‘s David Walliams, and took the opportunity of a serious Q&A in the same year to give hope to One Directioners everywhere.

You can watch the full Red Nose Day special in the U.S. on May 25. Also airing that same night is the new 10-minute Love Actually sequel with many of the original cast, including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, and Andrew Lincoln reprising their roles.

March 13, 2017   Ali   Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Comments Off on ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is the most preordered audiobook ever

MarketWatch shares that the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the most pre-ordered audiobook ever … and even better is it features Eddie’s fabulous voice as the narrator!

Mb>Only Harry Potter could turn an encyclopedia into an audiobook best seller

Just how magical is the grip Harry Potter has on Muggle wallets? Consider this: The audiobook edition of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was Audible’s most preordered title ever, the company told MarketWatch.

Mind you, this audiobook, which goes on sale Tuesday, is not even a reading of the screenplay of the hit 2016 movie, but rather the alphabetical encyclopedia of magical creatures, from Acromantula to Yeti, on which the film is very loosely based. (It’s as if “Audubon’s Birds of America” suddenly became an audiobook best seller.)

“There are some really great tongue-twister words in here,” said narrator Eddie Redmayne, who reprised his film role as Newt Scamander for the audiobook. “Occasionally, I had to stop recording just because I was incapable of saying the words without either laughing or getting my tongue in a muddle.”

J.K. Rowling’s short, funny magizoology reference book cast an avada kedavra on Lee Child, whose 2016 “Night School” held the prior record for most preordered audiobook, Audible spokeswomen Esther Bochner said, though the Amazon AMZN, -0.03% subsidiary declined to share specific sales figures.

Since being released in November 2015 on Audible, more than 3 million Harry Potter audiobooks have been sold, Bochner said.

The Harry Potter wizarding universe continues to expand to meet the insane demand that will likely extend the franchise across generations the way Disney DIS, -0.09% has managed with the Star Wars and Marvel franchises.

For Harry Potter audiobook fans, the most hoped-for new publication would be a recording of the stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” Currently an impossible-to-get ticket in London’s West End, the show is slated to head to Broadway in 2018. To date, Rowling and Audible have been mum on whether there would ever be an audiobook version of the play.
